High-Traffic International Hotel Taps Locking Security Provider for Greater Security

The Houjie International Hotel in Dongguan, China has recently completed the installation of a standalone locking system, Classic by VingCard.

"Our property is located in the heart of one of the most active economies in China," says Zhenbiao Luo, executive auditor at the Houjie International Hotel. "The location is ideal for business travelers, but comes with extensive traffic in the area, requiring the highest security available today. The Classic Lock by VingCard allowed us to meet the unique security needs of our property while satisfying the demands of our guests."

With over 15 years of proven performance in properties worldwide, Classic by VingCard employs cutting-edge technology to offer a unique design for user-friendly guest interaction. The standalone electronic lock is controlled by software existing in the individual lock and activated by cards coded in the issuing computer. Since the cylinder is recoded from the outside of the lock, the key cards can be recoded without disturbing guests at the property. Built with a full mortise ANS or EURO lock case, with a security latch and strong deadbolt, the Classic lock has been tested through more than 1.2 million openings without visible signs of wear and tear.

"When we built this property, we knew we needed simple, reliable security that would last through the heavy traffic that comes with developing in a city with a booming economy," says Luo. "With Classic by VingCard, our staff can depend on the unique features, including the 600-event audit trail and new 'flash' technology that allows us to reprogram or update locks without replacing expensive hardware, to help our staff maintain efficient security at all times."

The system utilizes a high-quality brass escutcheon reinforced by a steel plate and solid brass handles to provide added security. The system also uses a unique life safety cylinder, a recodable emergency overdrive, and a "panic release" deadbolt activated by a single action of the inner handle.

Future upgrade options
Additionally, by installing Classic by VingCard, Houjie International Hotel will have the option to easily and cost-effectively upgrade their Classic locks in the future to employ contactless technology as well as Near Field Communication (NFC) cell phone compatibility. With Classic RFID by VingCard, existing VingCard customers don't need to replace their current locks entirely; instead, only the end cap and card reader needs to be changed. The three-step upgrade requires hoteliers to 1) remove the outside Classic by VingCard escutcheon, 2) replace the end-cap with the new Classic RFID by VingCard module, and 3) enjoy the benefits of contactless RFID.

Classic RFID is a secure open-platform system compatible with the three leading RFID ISO standards (ISO 14443A/MiFare, ISO 14443B, ISO 15693) and also the Near Field Communication (NFC) transaction platform for cell phones, therefore eliminating the guesswork for hoteliers in choosing the right technology standard.
